U of A Xebra

Home Cars Boats Planes Other

The University of Arizona has replaced their gas parking ticket vehicle with a new Xebra truck with solar power. A solar panel over the truck bed charges the batteries, giving a limited range on solar power alone. The solar panel increases the range and by charging all day also extends the life of the batteries, as they will not be discharged to as low a charge level.

More universities and businesses are buying cars with solar assist across the world, some never need to be plugged in, it just depends on how far they are driven.
